Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

Are all these sentences correct:

a) "She's usually quiet, but there are times when she can STIR great emoticons."

b) "She's usually quiet, but there are times when she can RAISE great emoticons."

c) She's usually quiet, but there are times when she can AROUSE great emoticons."

    c) is correct.  In proper English no one says 'stir' great emotions or 'raise' great emotions.  But you can certainly AROUSE great emotions.

      Did you notice I wrote "emotions" in all three instances. I'm sure the asker will notice that. No need to point that out, others have already done so. DUH

    They are all correct apart from the last word, which should be emotions. Note that emotion can also be used as a singular noun ie  'great emotion.'

    I might prefer "Brings out".

     Or state: temper was lost.

    EMOTICONS? You mean "emotions". The three highlighted words are all appropriate.
